The whole area has been a desert for a very long time. It was only US technology, dams, reservoirs that have allowed us to channel water in from other places to make the place a little more green. Our (ahem) leaders in Sacramento lost sight of this responsibility a few decades ago and stopped planning for the necessary increase in water supply to service a growing population. Hence, it's probably more accurate to say it's looking more like a desert again, back to what it was before we got here.
That said, yeah, probably won't be growing coffee beans here any time soon.
